After working with the Booker Team in Newark since Jan. 7, 2008, Esmeralda Diaz-Cameron will go to work for a Fortune 30 company, she told PolitickerNJ.com.
“It has been an honor to work for Mayor Booker and to represent his Administration as city spokesperson,” the acting communications director said, ackowledging news first reported by the Star-Ledger. “The past four years have been a rewarding experience and I am proud to have been part of the historic achievements that are part of the city’s urban transformation under Mayor Booker’s leadership.
“I sincerely appreciate the opportunities that have been provided to me during my years of public service with the City of Newark. It’s been a privilege to work with the incredible team of professionals who make up the Press Information Office and to serve the residents of the City of Newark. Over the next few weeks, I will be working with the Mayor and his senior team to ensure for a smooth transition and wish the Mayor and my friends at City Hall continued success in transforming our city into a national model of excellence.”
Diaz-Cameron replaced Anne Torres, who left six weeks ago amid a feeding frenzy around Mayor Cory Booker’s statement on Meet the Press that he was nauseated by partisan politics.
Booker was on the show as a purported political ally of President Barack Obama’s.
